This episode's cover is The Partisan's accordionist Alan Zisman, by one of his grade five (10 years old) students.
And thank you to Jeff and Lucas for helping me out in the booth!
And the name of the vital Cajun movie I couldn't remember is of course: J'ai été au bal (I want to dance): roots of Cajun and Zydeco music, by Les Blank, Chris Strachwitz & Maureen Gosling. (2002). Get it! http://www.savoymusiccenter.com/
Apologies for the sound in the first half of this show. I'm just happy we figured it out for the end. We aren't set up for live playing, so it's precarious. Mostly, there's no way to sound-check except live-on-the-air! So certainly don't hold it against the musicians. And if you want to make a donation to the Co-op Radio tech fund (which I just named), please get ahold of us!
This is where we get to say, "Please support ethical and unusual media by becoming a member of Co-op Radio," because we love you. HO HO HO!
